The Gov’t Is After Your Money: Beware Of The Government’s Push For A Digital Currency

“The greatest tyrannies are always perpetrated in the name of the noblest causes.” — Thomas Paine

It will beg, steal or borrow if necessary, but it wants your money any way it can get it.

The government’s schemes to swindle, cheat, scam, and generally defraud taxpayers of their hard-earned dollars have run the gamut from wasteful pork barrel legislation, cronyism and graft to asset forfeiture, costly stimulus packages, and a national security complex that continues to undermine our freedoms while failing to making us any safer.

Americans have also been made to pay through the nose for the government’s endless wars, subsidization of foreign nations, military empire, welfare state, roads to nowhere, bloated workforce, secret agencies, fusion centers, private prisons, biometric databases, invasive technologies, arsenal of weapons, and every other budgetary line item that is contributing to the fast-growing wealth of the corporate elite at the expense of those who are barely making ends meet — that is, we the taxpayers.

This is what comes of those $1.5 trillion spending bills: someone’s got to foot the bill.

Because the government’s voracious appetite for money, power and control has grown out of control, its agents have devised other means of funding its excesses and adding to its largesse through taxes disguised as fines, taxes disguised as fees, and taxes disguised as tolls, tickets and penalties.

No matter how much money the government pulls in, it’s never enough, so the government has come up with a new plan to make it even easier for its agents to seize Americans’ bank accounts.

Make way for the digital dollar.

In an Executive Order issued on March 9, 2022, President Biden called for the federal government to consider establishing a “U.S. Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC).”

Similar to cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin, CBDCs would also be a form of digital money, but there the resemblance ends. If adopted, CBDCs would be issued by the Federal Reserve, the central banking system for the U.S. government. One CBDC digital dollar would equal the value of a physical dollar. And like the physical dollar, which ceased to be backed by gold more than 50 years ago, the CBDC would be considered a government-issued fiat currency that is backed by the strength and credit of the U.S. government. (Of course, that’s not saying much considering that much of the time, the U.S. government operates in the red.)

Although government agencies have six months to weigh in on the advantages and disadvantages of a centralized digital currency, it’s as good as a done deal.

For instance, three weeks before the Biden Administration made headlines with its support for a government-issued digital currency, the FBI and the Justice Department quietly moved ahead with plans for a cryptocurrency enforcement team (translation: digital money cops), a virtual asset exploitation unit tasked with investigating crypto crimes and seizing virtual assets, and a crypto czar to oversee it all.

No surprises here, of course.

This is how the government operates: by giving us tools to make our lives “easier” while, in the process, making it easier for the government to track, control and punish the citizenry.

Indeed, this shift to a digital currency is a global trend.

More than 100 other countries are considering introducing their own digital currencies.

China has already adopted a government-issued digital currency, which not only allows it to surveil and seize people’s financial transactions, but can also work in tandem with its social credit score system to punish individuals for moral lapses and social transgressions (and reward them for adhering to government-sanctioned behavior).

As China expert Akram Keram wrote for The Washington Post, “With digital yuan, the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] will have direct control over and access to the financial lives of individuals, without the need to strong-arm intermediary financial entities. In a digital-yuan-consumed society, the government easily could suspend the digital wallets of dissidents and human rights activists.”

Where China goes, the United States eventually follows.

Inevitably, a digital currency will become part of our economy and a central part of the government’s surveillance efforts.

Combine that with ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) initiatives that are tantamount to social media credit scores for corporations, and you will find that we’re traveling the same road as China towards digital authoritarianism. As journalist Jon Brookin warns: “Digital currency issued by a central bank can be used as a tool for government surveillance of citizens and control over their financial transactions.”

As such, digital currency provides the government and its corporate partners with a mode of commerce that can easily be monitored, tracked, tabulated, mined for data, hacked, hijacked and confiscated when convenient.

This push for a digital currency dovetails with the government’s war on cash, which it has been subtly waging for some time now. Much like the war on drugs and the war on terror, this so-called “war on cash” has been sold to the public as a means of fighting terrorists, drug dealers, tax evaders and more recently, COVID-19 germs.

In recent years, just the mere possession of significant amounts of cash could implicate you in suspicious activity and label you a criminal. The rationale (by police) is that cash is the currency for illegal transactions given that it’s harder to track, can be used to pay illegal immigrants, and denies the government its share of the “take,” so doing away with paper money will help law enforcement fight crime and help the government realize more revenue.

According to economist Steve Forbes, “The real reason for this war on cash — start with the big bills and then work your way down — is an ugly power grab by Big Government. People will have less privacy: Electronic commerce makes it easier for Big Brother to see what we’re doing, thereby making it simpler to bar activities it doesn’t like, such as purchasing salt, sugar, big bottles of soda and Big Macs.”

This is how a cashless society — easily monitored, controlled, manipulated, weaponized and locked down — plays right into the hands of the government (and its corporate partners).

Despite what we know about the government and its history of corruption, bumbling, fumbling and data breaches, not to mention how easily technology can be used against us, the shift to a cashless society is really not a hard sell for a society increasingly dependent on technology for the most mundane aspects of life.

In much the same way that Americans have opted into government surveillance through the convenience of GPS devices and cell phones, digital cash — the means of paying with one’s debit card, credit card or cell phone — is becoming the de facto commerce of the American police state.

Not too long ago, it was estimated that smart phones would replace cash and credit cards altogether by 2020. Right on schedule, growing numbers of businesses have adopted no-cash policies, including certain airlines, hotels, rental car companies, restaurants and retail stores. In Sweden, even the homeless and churches accept digital cash.

Making the case for a digital wallet, journalist Lisa Rabasca Roepe argues that there’s no longer a need for cash. “More and more retailers and grocery stores are embracing Apple Pay, Google Wallet, Samsung Pay, and Android Pay,” notes Roepe. “PayPal’s app is now accepted at many chain stores including Barnes & Noble, Foot Locker, Home Depot, and Office Depot. Walmart and CVS have both developed their own payment apps while their competitors Target and RiteAid are working on their own apps.”

So what’s really going on here?

Despite all of the advantages that go along with living in a digital age — namely, convenience — it’s hard to imagine how a cashless world navigated by way of a digital wallet doesn’t signal the beginning of the end for what little privacy we have left and leave us vulnerable to the likes of government thieves, data hackers and an all-knowing, all-seeing Orwellian corpo-governmental state.

First, when I say privacy, I’m not just referring to the things that you don’t want people to know about, those little things you do behind closed doors that are neither illegal nor harmful but embarrassing or intimate. I am also referring to the things that are deeply personal and which no one need know about, certainly not the government and its constabulary of busybodies, nannies, Peeping Toms, jail wardens and petty bureaucrats.

Second, we’re already witnessing how easy it will be for government agents to manipulate digital wallets for their own gain in order to track your movements, monitor your activities and communications, and ultimately shut you down. For example, civil asset forfeiture schemes are becoming even more profitable for police agencies thanks to ERAD (Electronic Recovery and Access to Data) devices supplied by the Department of Homeland Security that allow police to not only determine the balance of any magnetic-stripe card (i.e., debit, credit and gift cards) but also freeze and seize any funds on pre-paid money cards. In fact, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that it does not violate the Fourth Amendment for police to scan or swipe your credit card. Expect those numbers to skyrocket once digital money cops show up in full force.

Third, a government-issued digital currency will give the government the ultimate control of the economy and complete access to the citizenry’s pocketbook. While the government might tout the ease with which it can deposit stimulus funds into the citizenry’s accounts, such a system could also introduce what economists refer to as “negative interest rates.” Instead of being limited by a zero bound threshold on interest rates, the government could impose negative rates on digital accounts in order to control economic growth. “If the cash is electronic, the government can just erase 2 percent of your money every year,” said David Yermack, a finance professor at New York University.

Fourth, a digital currency will open Americans — and their bank accounts — up to even greater financial vulnerabilities from hackers and government agents alike.

Fifth, digital authoritarianism will redefine what it means to be free in almost every aspect of our lives. Again, we must look to China to understand what awaits us. As Human Rights Watch analyst Maya Wang explains:

“Chinese authorities use technology to control the population all over the country in subtler but still powerful ways. The central bank is adopting digital currency, which will allow Beijing to surveil — and control — people’s financial transactions. China is building so-called safe cities, which integrate data from intrusive surveillance systems to predict and prevent everything from fires to natural disasters and political dissent. The government believes that these intrusions, together with administrative actions, such as denying blacklisted people access to services, will nudge people toward ‘positive behaviors,’ including greater compliance with government policies and healthy habits such as exercising.”

Short of returning to a pre-technological, Luddite age, there’s really no way to pull this horse back now that it’s left the gate. To our detriment, we have virtually no control over who accesses our private information, how it is stored, or how it is used. And in terms of our bargaining power over digital privacy rights, we have been reduced to a pitiful, unenviable position in which we can only hope and trust that those in power will treat our information with respect.

At a minimum, before any kind of digital currency is adopted, we need stricter laws on data privacy and an Electronic Bill of Rights that protects “we the people” from predatory surveillance and data-mining business practices by the government and its corporate partners.

As author John Whitehead made it clear in his book Battlefield America: The War on the American People and in its fictional counterpart The Erik Blair Diaries, the ramifications of a government — any government — having this much unregulated, unaccountable power to target, track, round up and detain its citizens is beyond chilling.

Time To Pay Attention: 5 Points Proving America’s Inflation Crisis Is Gonna Get MUCH Worse

By Michael Snyder

If you are less than 40 years old, you have never seen inflation like this in the United States. Despite all the warnings, our politicians in Washington just kept borrowing and spending trillions upon trillions of dollars that we did not have. And despite all the warnings, the Federal Reserve just kept pumping trillions of fresh dollars into the financial system.

torn,bills,revealing,inflation,words.,idea,for,fed,consider,interest

Now we have a giant mess on our hands, and anyone that believes that this is going to be easily fixed is simply being delusional.

Of course most Americans weren’t going to start paying attention to all of this until it started to affect them personally. Now it is affecting all of us personally, and there are millions of people out there that are becoming increasingly frustrated about the current state of affairs.

Unfortunately, this crisis appears to be just in the early stages. The following are 5 numbers that indicate that the inflation crisis in the United States continues to get even worse:

#1 The producer price index has risen at a rate of 9.7 percent over the previous 12 months.  According to CNBC, that is close to a brand new record:

“The producer price index, which measures final demand goods and services, increased 1% for the month, against the Dow Jones estimate for 0.5%. Over the past 12 months the gauge rose an unadjusted 9.7%, close to a record in data going back to 2010.”

Last week we learned that the consumer price index has risen by 7.5 percent over the previous 12 months.  Of course if the consumer price index was still calculated the way that it was back in 1980, the real number would actually be more than double the official number that we were just given.

#2 Truck trailer prices in January 2022 were 29.6 percent higher than they were in January 2021:

“A shortage of parts and labor has sent the prices of truck trailers through the roof. Truck trailer prices jumped 3.1 percent in January, data from the Department of Labor showed Tuesday. That followed a 3.8 percent increase in December. Compared with 12-months ago, trailer prices are up 29.6 percent, by far the biggest one-year jump in records going back to 1980.”

#3 The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics is telling us that the price of used vehicles rose by an astounding 40.5 percent from January 2021 to January 2022:

“According to data released by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics on Thursday, the consumer price index for used cars and trucks jumped up by 40.5% from January 2021 to January 2022. That means within a year, the average price of used cars and trucks for urban consumers has gone up by 40.5%.”

#4 You may have noticed that you are paying a lot more at the pump these days.  If you can believe it, the price of gasoline has actually shot up 40.8 percent since Joe Biden first entered the White House:

“Between January 2021 and January 2022–President Joe Biden’s first year in office–the price of unleaded gasoline increased 40.8 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.”

#5 The price of lumber has really been surging once again.  According to the National Association of Home Builders, this most recent surge has “added more than $18,600 to the price of a newly built home”:

“That is adding to the cost of both building a new home and remodeling an older one. The National Association of Home Builders estimated the recent price jump added more than $18,600 to the price of a newly built home. It also added nearly $7,300 to the cost of the average new multifamily home, which translates into households paying $67 a month more to rent a new apartment.”

Ouch.

I sure wouldn’t want to be trying to build a new home in this environment.

Pressure has been building on the Federal Reserve to take action, and it is being anticipated that the “geniuses” at the Federal Reserve could raise interest rates by 50 basis points next month…

“The hot inflation readings led financial markets to price in a better-than-even chance of a 50 basis points interest rate hike from the Federal Reserve next month. Inflation is running well above the U.S. central bank’s 2 percent target. Economists are expecting as many as seven rate hikes this year.”

Just recently, a reader sent me an email which pointed out that we shouldn’t have a system where an unelected group of bureaucrats gets together and determines what our interest rates are going to be.

And he is exactly right.

In a free market system, interest rates would be determined by the free market.

But we don’t have a free market system anymore.

In fact, we haven’t had one for a long time.

Of course when it comes to the economy, the guy in the White House is going to get more of the credit or more of the blame for what is going on than anyone else.

And a brand new poll that was just released has Joe Biden’s approval rating sitting at just 34 percent:

“The president’s approval rating nationally sits around 40 percent, according to several tracking averages, but a new CIVIQS poll showed it sitting at 34 percent from the 165,786 respondents surveyed.”

That is a shockingly bad number, and what should alarm Democrats even more is how bad Biden’s numbers are in the most important swing states:

“Swing states of Georgia, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin all voted narrowly blue in the 2020 election, but the new poll shows their approval of Biden sits in the low 30 percentages.

Arizona has the biggest split with 32 percent approval to 61 percent disapproval. Georgia sits in second with 31 percent approval to 59 percent disapproval; Pennsylvania’s split is 36 percent to 57 percent; Michigan is 33 percent to 59 percent; and Wisconsin has 36 percent approval and 56 percent disapproval of Biden.”

Unfortunately, Biden isn’t going to resign no matter how low his numbers go.

That means that we are going to have at least three more years of either Joe Biden or Kamala Harris running the country.

So we shouldn’t expect any dramatic policy shifts from Washington.

And the “geniuses” at the Fed are undoubtedly going to find even more ways to really mess things up. They are the ones that are more responsible than anyone else for getting us into this mess, and now many Americans are desperately hoping that they can get us out of it.

If you are waiting for them to fix the economy, you are going to be waiting a really, really long time.

have been warning for years that the decisions that were being made would have severe consequences, and now those consequences have started to arrive.

We are on a road to national ruin, and those that are running things are even more blind than those that they are supposed to be leading.

It’s Time for America to Leave NATO and for Europe to Resolve Their Internal Disputes

By Steve McCann

Since 1916 and the First World War, United States foreign policy has been dominated by Eurocentrism. Following the Second World War, America has been the military protector of Western Europe for 73 years through the North Atlantic Treaty Organization or NATO. 

Now the time has come to disband NATO and tell the countries of Europe, in particular Germany, that they are on their own, as this nation must focus on its ever-growing domestic problems and the global threat of Communist China.

The United States should have begun the process of severing military commitments with Europe after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. After all, protecting Europe and thus the United States against Soviet aggression was the primary purpose of NATO.  But an irrational fear of a non-existent nation and its former satellites still persists and has been conferred on its much smaller and less formidable successor, Russia.  Together with the compulsive need to defend a prosperous continent these two pillars still form the basis of American military planning and international policy.

The divorce process should have been accelerated in 1993 when the anti-democratic European Union comprising 27 European countries and unified economic, social and security policies came into being.  The combined population of these nations is 33% larger and their overall annual Gross National Product is second only to the United States.  Since 1993 Europe has been more than capable of defending itself. 

The primary accomplishment of the European Union has been to pave the way for Germany to once again assume the dominant role in Europe.  Under the guise and false pretense of an all-powerful administrative European Union, the German ideas of collectivism, protectionism and corporatism have been successfully established throughout much of Europe.

Through a single currency, a single market, a European Central Bank which controls monetary policy and sets interest rates, strict industry protocols, an overbearing bureaucracy, and an endless array of regulations, German influence saturates all of Europe.  German economic might has placed many of the poorer southern European states in a vice grip of indebtedness from which they cannot escape unless the Euro fails.  In which case the entire continent is thrust into uncontrolled financial chaos which ultimately benefits Germany and Russia.

German determination to dominate Europe did not end in 1945; it continues to the present day.  With the exception of Great Britain, Germany is Western Europe and Western Europe is Germany.

Thanks to their determination to “go green,” Germany has shuttered its nuclear power plants, is closing its coal plants and is failing miserably in its attempt to rely on alternative electricity sources such as wind and solar.  Germany has made a commitment to natural gas. With no supply of their own they are dependent on imports.  And those imports come from Russia.  Further, the new socialist government in Germany is further left of center than ever before and philosophically closer to Russia than the United States.

If the European Union as presently constituted continues to exist, the economic power of Germany and the fossil fuel reserves and military of Russia will, in due course, give birth to Germany and Russia being in a de facto alliance in full control of the European continent, achieving a centuries-old goal for both nations.

Yet, the United States through NATO not only continues to defend Germany and much of Europe against the theoretical enemy Germany is in bed with, but Germany and 19 other countries refuse to meet their financial and military obligations to the alliance.  The imbalance in the alliance is not just the funding but the obligation of the United States to get involved in virtually any and all internal and external conflicts involving the countries of Europe.

The ongoing threat by Russia to invade Ukraine is the latest debacle in Europe involving NATO.  It has revealed not only the folly of keeping that alliance alive but the mindset of the German ruling class. 

Ukraine is not a member of NATO.  Even if it were, it is a European problem requiring a European solution.  Nonetheless, Germany, a huge beneficiary of NATO’s defense and protection for generations, is refusing to participate in either a NATO or a European solution.  

They will not defend Ukraine, agree to sanctions, send armaments or support, and have banned other countries from using German air space or transportation to do so.  Germany has turned its back insisting on an obsequious pro-Russia approach.  It is not just a matter of dependence on Russian gas, but realpolitik at play for both countries, as Germany in 2014 didn’t lift a finger or protest Russia’s proxy war in Eastern Ukraine or the annexation of Crimea.

Instead of having an addled American president creating chaos and stumbling into a military conflict under the umbrella of NATO, the United States should use the Ukrainian-Russian confrontation as the perfect opportunity to tell Germany and the rest of Europe: This is your problem; find a solution as we are finished with NATO and being dragged into conflicts that are not in our national interest. 

The time has come to focus on the home front and the global hegemony Communist China is determined to achieve.  This country does not have the wealth or resources to protect Europe from itself, solve myriad domestic and societal issues, and confront China.  Due to its size, ideology, implacable nationalism, economy and centuries-old belief in manifest destiny, China is the greatest long-term threat to the United States in its history.

I am from Europe.  While I no longer have any familial ties to Europe, I have many emotional ties to the continent where I was born and later maintained an office.  America leaving NATO will force Europe to confront the long-term viability of a German dominated European Union and Russia’s ambitions.  As well as come to the realization that Communist China is a far greater threat to Europe than their present-day internal squabbles.

Why Do Globalist “Prophecies” Come True?

Time and time again throughout history — whenever the masters of The New World Order have had a major “trans-formative” chess move in mind — they gave advance notice to the lower criminal ranks of the power pyramid as well as to the naïve normie camp followers of their trusted publications. In this way, when the event which they “warned about” actually came to pass, they were already perfectly positioned as the geniuses who “saw it coming” and should therefore now be looked to for guidance and solutions.
 
We present here four such cases of self-fulfilling rigged “prophecies” which came to pass and led to the outcomes which the Globalists wanted.

It doesn’t take a magic crystal ball nor any real imagination to predict the future when you’re the one controlling the present.

PROPHECY: JANUARY 1906

The mighty international banker Jacob Schiff stated before the New York Chamber of Commerce that unless the currency system was reformed (meaning, unless a Rothschild Central Bank was re-instituted in America), there would be:

“Such a panic in this country compared with which the threewhich had preceded it would look like child’s play.”(here)

EVENT: OCTOBER 1907: “The Panic of 1907”
The stock market crashed down to 50% off of its peak, triggering bank runs and a nasty recession. The deliberate panic eventually spread throughout the nation when many state and local banks and businesses went bankrupt.

President Theodore Roosevelt used the pretext of The Panic of 1907 to appoint a “commission” (beholden to the Jewish banking Mafia) from which came the proposal for the evil Federal Reserve System(Central Bank) that would be established in 1913). In short, the same crime gang which crashed the economy stepped forward with a “solution” to prevent crashes from ever occurring again.

The Panic of 1907 was engineered so that the Federal Reserve counterfeiting, loan-sharking and market-rigging operation could be re-established (nearly 80 years after Andrew the Great Jackson killed the US Central Bank)

PROPHECY: NOVEMBER, 1998

A trio of high-ranking Deep Staters — Ashton B. Carter, John Deutch, and Philip Zelikow, wrote an article in the “prestigious” Foreign Affairs quarterly (the official publication of the Council on Foreign Relations). The piece was titled:

Catastrophic Terrorism: Tackling the New Danger – and subtitled:
“Imagining the Transforming Event.”

An excerpt:

Such an act of catastrophic terrorism would be a watershed event in American history. It could involve loss of life and property unprecedented in peacetime and undermine America’s fundamental sense of security. Like Pearl Harbor, this event would divide our past and future into a before and after. The United States might respond with draconian measures, scaling back civil liberties, allowing wider surveillance of citizens, detention of suspects, and use of deadly force. As the 1993 World Trade Center incident demonstrated, a terrorist group can include U.S. citizens and foreign nationals, operating and moving materials in and out of American territory over long periods of time.(emphasis added)  /// (here)

EVENT: SEPTEMBER 11, 2001
The ultimate “transforming” event – a horrifying made-for-TV mass slaughter which traumatized the nation — played out exactly as foretold. The attacks led to a 20-year “War on Terror” which was finally ended by President Donald Trump.

An Unknown ‘Disease X’ Could Become an Epidemic. Can We Find It Before It’s Too Late?

Earlier this year, the World Health Organization listed “Disease X” among the diseases most in need of research and development.

Disease X is not a specific illness, but rather a hypothetical epidemic that could be caused by a pathogen (contagious strain of a virus or bacterium) that we don’t yet realize affects humans.

Experts at the World Health Summit in Berlin this week warned that we’re not prepared to find such a disease at its likely animal source, or spot it quickly when it starts making people sick.(here)

“You know that the right-wing echo chamber is going to be filled with disinformation about how they stole the election, how they stuffed ballot boxes, ‘we need to rebel,’ ” Mr. Blumenthal said. “That right wing is not America. It’s certainly not the America we know.”

The Fed Preparing To CRASH Global Financial Systems To Implement The Great Reset

The Federal Reserve is preparing to crash the financial system in the middle of a global pandemic that has devastated the world since 2020.

In a report published in Global Research, author F. William Engdahl notes that the Fed, together with other globalist powers, is set to bring down the U.S. financial market using rising costs of inflation as their excuse. This will cause the greatest financial bubble in history to crash, paving the way for the “Great Reset.”the fed is preparing to crash global financial systems to implement the great reset

The foundations for the crash and the Great Reset have already been laid: In the U.S., the Biden administration is inching closer to triggering another major way by leading the North Atlantic Treaty Organization into pouring arms and advisers to Ukraine – a country currently in conflict with Russia.

Meanwhile, the U.S. is in the middle of the row between China and Taiwan – while also waging proxy wars against China in Ethiopia and other parts of Africa.

The trillion of dollars in emergency spending by both Donald Trump and Joe Biden plus the continuation of the Federal Reserve’s near-zero interest policies have set the stage for an imminent market collapse. Asset purchases of billions in bonds to keep the bubble inflated proved that the collapse is deliberate and managed.

The U.S. inflation is being worsened by supply chain disruptions from Asia across North America. The inflation which is the worst in four decades set the stage for central banks to bring down the debt-bloated system and prepare the Great Reset of the world’s financial system.

The economies of major industrial nations will self-destruct due to the Green New Deal in the European Union and the United States. The collapse of the dollar system will bring down most of the world owing to its debt ties.

The electric grid in the European Union is on the brink of major power blackouts this winter, no thanks to the zero-carbon policies to phase out coal, oil, gas and even nuclear. The grid is dependent on unreliable wind and solar energy.

Germany’s newest green government needed to close three nuclear plants on Dec. 31. Nuclear plants generate the electricity being used by Denmark. Wind and solar cannot fill the gap.

Biden Projects Led To Record High In Fuel Costs

Biden’s Build Back Better led to a record high in fuel costs and it’s an educated guess that raising interest rates will devastate the entire world.

A strategic risk consultant and lecturer, Engdahl, a graduate of Princeton University, noted that the Fed has used “core inflation” to get rid of politically damaging consumer inflation monthly data that showed increasing oil and grain prices. Core inflation means consumer price rises minus energy and food. Disgraced President Richard Nixon used the term in 1975 to fake the data.

“Core inflation is a scam because American consumers had to pay far more for gasoline and bread. Very few real people can live without energy or food,” stressed Engdahl.

Presently, the U.S. Consumer Price Index does not include the cost of buying and financing houses, and also property taxes or home maintenance and improvement which have been soaring.

The Fed should issue a statement admitting that inflation is more alarming than they thought. This situation requires aggressive rate hikes to “squeeze inflation out of the system.”

Aided by near-zero Fed rates and $120 billion of monthly purchases by the Fed of bonds, Wall Street with stocks at historic highs could start a panic exit from stocks to get out.

This, of course, will trigger panic selling and a snowballing market collapse, which will make the real estate and stock collapse of Evergrande small time.

Engdahl noted that the Federal Reserve and major banks like ECB in the EU and the Bank of Japan gave zero interest rates and “quantitative easing” purchases of bonds to bail out the major financial institutions and Wall Street and EU banks in utter disregard of the health of the real economy.

The largest bailout in the history of brain-dead banks and financial funds resulted in the artificial inflation of the greatest speculative bubble in stocks in history.

As s savvy businessman, Donald Trump knew that the new record rises in the S&P 500 stocks as proof of the booming economy, was a lie because of the Fed zero interest rate policy.

American Economy Sinking

With massive labor shortages, lockdowns and supply chain problems coming from China, the U.S. economy is sinking and Biden’s phony “infrastructure” bill will do little to rebuild the vital economic infrastructure of highways, rains, water treatment plants and electric grids.

The Fed is preparing for the stock crash in 2022 which it will use to usher in a real Great Depression, It will be worse than what happened in the 1930s because the savings of ordinary Americans will be wiped out.

Biden’s tax on corporate stock buybacks resulted in S&P 500 companies buying back $742 billion of their own shares. Whether the Fed will reduce its buying of treasury securities as well as home mortgage bonds.

The COVID-19 pandemic hysteria led to huge buying and Federal Reserve holdings of securities have more than doubled from $3.8 trillion to $8 trillion at the end of October 2021.

The U.S. also manipulated employment data and inflation numbers. This happened during the Vietnam War era under Lyndon Johnson. Presently, private economist John Williams of Shadow Government Statistics, estimated that the actual unemployment rate in the U.S. is over 24.8 percent which is far from the reported 4.2 percent for November.

The fragile U.S. and global financial system will collapse if rates will be raised. Citizens might beg for emergency relief in the form of digital money and a Great Reset.

The Washington-based Institute of International Finance in September estimated that global debt levels, which include government, household and corporate and bank debt, rose $4.8 trillion to $296 trillion at the end of June, $36 trillion above pre-pandemic levels. Emerging markets such as Turkey, China, India and Pakistan owed a combined $92 trillion.

Mismanagement Of The COVID-19 Crisis And The Collapse Of The 2020’s

Mismanagement of the COVID-19 crisis has initiated a socioeconomic chain reaction that has only begun to play out. Nevertheless, this story has a silver lining: the chance to make the world a better place.

But it has to start with an honest assessment of how we got here, and point to a positive course of action…

mismanagement of the covid 19 crisis and the collapse of the 2020s

Imagine ten years ago if someone described to you what the world would look like as we entered the 2020’s. Would you have believed them?

Interesting times eh? It’s about to get a lot more interesting.

History will remember this decade as a critical turning point. The end of an era.

2020 was the year that ideas like this went mainstream. Headlines that used to be relegated to the lunatic fringe were now being promoted by the corporate media.

Credible economists warning that a banking crisisa sovereign debt crisis and ultimately a monetary crisis were on the horizon. Prominent researchers projecting more riots and unrest and potentially a civil war.

The U.N. calling for urgent action to avert a global food emergency.

And world leaders warning that military conflict between the United States and China “was no longer inconceivable”.

Then of course we had the COVID-19 debacle. Though the ‘authorities’ would blame the disease itself, it was their ill-conceived response that actually served as the catalyst.

Their short sighted policies initiated a chain reaction. Some consequences of this chain reaction are inevitable (like a bullet that has left the barrel of a gun). Others hang in the balance. There will not, however, be any going back to normal.

This story has a silver lining; a chance to make the world a better place. But it has to start with an honest assessment of how we got here, and point to a positive course of action.

In the winter of 2020 as COVID-19 went exponential a panic was spreading even faster.

Borders around the globe slammed shut in rapid succession and the vast majority of the world’s population was placed under some form of curfew or stay at home order.

Businesses deemed non-essential were shuttered.

Events cancelled.

Gatherings banned.

In some countries people weren’t even allowed outside to exercise.

The public accepted these policies at first because they were led to believe they would only last a few weeks.

But as weeks became months, and infections soared in spite of summer temperatures it became clear that the lockdowns were never going to eradicate this virus.

At best they would slow or delay the spread. And at what cost?

Those who hatched this plan had made no provision for a pandemic that would linger on for months or years. They didn’t even account for the socioeconomic chain reaction that the first round of lock downs would set in motion.

With businesses shuttered and movement highly restricted, millions were left unemployed virtually overnight. The scale and speed of these job losses broke all previous records. Even the great depression didn’t come close.

By the summer of 2020 flash points of violence and social unrest were flaring up in cities around the world. Pent up frustrations were building, for obvious reasons. Billions of people had just spent months locked in their houses.

Millions had been thrown into extreme poverty.

Most stress relieving activities had been banned: social gatherings, sports, time with friends at restaurants or bars… even places of worship were restricted. This was a powder keg waiting for a match.

Politicians obviously saw the danger in this equation. When millions of people are suddenly left hungry and homeless that’s a recipe for revolution. Something had to be done, and quickly. So they did something. Boy did they do something.

When all you have is a hammer every problem looks like a nail, and the governments around the world were looking at a very, very large nail. The fiscal stimulus programs of 2020 were epic; absolutely off the charts. By June over 18 trillion had been disbursed globally.

Some of this stimulus came in the form of checks sent directly to every single taxpayer. In the U.S. these checks shipped with a autograph of Donald J. Trump… so you would know who to thank.

Unemployment benefits were also expanded in many countries. In the United States for example unemployed workers were given an extra 600 dollars a week. This meant that many were earning more staying home than they had been on the job. In fact personal income in the United States soared by 10.5 percent in April; the largest monthly increase ever recorded.

Then there were the forgivable loans – via the paycheck protection program and similar schemes around the world – which were supposed to help prop up small businesses. Some of these loans ended up being extended to some rather strange small businesses.

For example,

the Church of Scientology got a check, as did the Catholic Church which landed a nifty 1.4 billion (some of which was distributed directly to dioceses which were facing bankruptcy due to clergy sex abuse settlements).

In the U.K. their version of the program approved a loan of 340,000 pounds to a company that hosts sex parties for the rich and famous. Seriously…

You can’t make this shit up.

These policies were obviously going to send national debts parabolic, but the reckoning would be delayed. At least for a little while.

Central banks played a critical role in this delayed reckoning.

As the historic stock market crash of February 2020 was unfolding, the Federal Reserve and their counterparts abroad were swinging their hammers in new and creative ways; injecting liquidity (aka money) into the system via asset markets.

If you’ve never heard of Quantitative Easing (or QE) you might want to look that up. The short version is that when central banks purchase assets new money is created.

The money that is transferred to the asset holders account is literally typed into existence. These asset holders typically reinvest this new money, causing asset prices (including the stocks) to rise. Poor people don’t typically own these kinds of assets so it’s basically welfare for the rich.

And while it’s wonderful that we can provide a such a nice safety net for the upper crust of society it does have one little side effect: inflating markets with liquidity creates asset bubbles. It’s like filling up a water balloon more and more… till its so big you can see through it. Sooner or later it always pops.

It also has the effect of increasing wealth inequality… but that’s a feature not a bug.

The first round of QE started in 2009 after the housing bubble collapsed. Cutting interest rates to zero just wasn’t enough. 2020 brought us round four (affectionately referred to by some as QE Infinity).

In this round the Fed would take their liquidity experiment to a whole new level; buying financial assets never touched during QE1, 2, or 3 including corporate debt and etfs.

In one month they purchased more assets than they had during the entire first year following the 2009 crisis.

By the end of May,

they had over 7 trillion dollars worth sitting on their books.

This new money fueled the most powerful stock rally in history.

Retail investors piled in.

Even the stocks of companies that had declared bankruptcy were flying high.

What could possibly go wrong?

With unemployment numbers still hovering at great depression levels and hopes of a quick, V-shaped recovery evaporating, all eyes were on governments and central banks. The question was not if there would be more stimulus and money printing, the real question was how big it would be this time.

Would it be enough? No one seemed to be asking what would happen if they went too far.

Our fearless leaders had painted themselves into a corner at this point. If unemployment benefits, mortgage forbearance and eviction moratoriums weren’t extended, those in power would soon be facing millions of homelesshungry and angry people.

With violence and unrest already smoldering in many major cities, this would be like throwing gasoline on a fire. Extending these protections however, would not be without a price.

Eviction moratoriums and mortgage forbearance programs had temporarily prevented millions from being suddenly made homeless. But with no rent coming in, landlords would soon be defaulting on mortgages en masse, as would many homeowners and businesses.

This tsunami of defaults and bankruptcies would shake the foundations of the banking system, which would of course prompt further interventions.

But as governments and central banks reached for bigger and bigger bailout hammers a monetary reckoning was rapidly approaching. And the Dollar’s world reserve currency status was in play.

For decades the dollar’s world reserve currency status had enabled Washington to run up its national debt at everyone else’s expense, and punish any nation that didn’t tow the line with unilateral sanctions (they even sanctioned the ICC for investigating war crimes committed by the U.S. military).

This era of exorbitant privilege, however, was coming to an end.

A growing hub of powerful countries had organizing behind the scenes for years; the groundwork for a currency insurrection was already laid.

Russia and China were the driving forces of this insurrection.

For years,

both countries had aggressively increased gold reserves and offloaded U.S. debt in a gradual process of de-dollarization, however in 2018 they crossed the rubicon.

Russia by launching an alternative to the SWIFT payment system which allowed countries to bypass U.S. sanctions and China by introducing the PetroYuanwhich would compete directly with the petrodollar.

China was also in the process developing a digital currency (aka the e-Yuan) that bypassed the need for banks all together. Transfers relied only on an app on your phone.

By July of 2020 China was already testing this new currency at scale.

It was only a matter of time before the digital yuan would be competing with the U.S. dollar globally.

It was this emerging threat to the dollar that motivated Washington to lash out in a series of desperate and ill conceived provocations. For example the Hong Kong Autonomy act, which the U.S. congress passed with a veto proof margin and was signed by Trump on July 14th, represented a serious escalation.

By imposing sanctions on any individual, company or bank which did business with Chinese officials enforcing the new security law, this legislation set the stage for Washington to cut China’s access to the dollar; a move which would ultimately divide the world into Yuan and Dollar based currency blocs.

Spoiler alert: it doesn’t end well for Uncle Sam.

These economic provocations were accompanied by multiple rounds of good old fashion saber rattling.

On July 13th, of 2020 when the Trump administration announced that the U.S. had decided to reject nearly all of China’s claims in the South China Sea, what this really meant was that the U.S. was going to intentionally violate airspace and waters around the artificial islands China had built up in the disputed zone, essentially daring the Chinese to do something.

It’s worth noting that by this time these islands were fully militarized and operational; complete with ports, runways and other facilities that gave the Chinese a clear strategic advantage.

At this stage the rest of the world was beginning to suspect that Uncle Sam was experiencing some form of cognitive decline. He wasn’t playing four dimensional chess here. He didn’t even seem to be playing with a full deck.

This was like a drunk guy poking a tiger with a stick (probably not going to end well).

The provocations would continue on multiple fronts: embassies ordered to close, Chinese companies sanctioned or banned from operating in the U.S. Anything and everything connected to China was open game.

China condemned each of these provocations but they didn’t take the bait. Their response would come when was in their strategic interests. They would choose their own timing. If direct conflict could be averted long enough, the U.S. was likely to collapse on its own. The war could be won without firing a shot.

Thucydides Trap:

The high probability of war when an emerging power threatens the dominance of an international hegemon.

As often happens when a declining empire is faced with a ascending rival, the United States was rushing headlong into Thucydides trap.

Those in power tend to try to stay in power by any and all means.

When all else fails pick a fight.

Would it be China?

Iran?

Some country on Russia’s border?

Eeny, meeny, miny, mo…

Meanwhile back in the U.S. of A. the violence and mayhem in the streets was intensifying. Businesses, government buildings and vehicles had been burning virtually every night for months on end. Protesters and counter protesters were now bringing semiautomatic weapons to the scene.

By September there were multiple fatalities on each side.

Perception of these events was increasingly polarized. The left and the right were no long behaving like political factions of a nation. They had devolved into hostile tribes fighting for control of a territory.

A radicalized strain of thought that directly endorsed violence as a political tool was metastasizing among a new generation of activists. A growing contingent had convinced themselves that they could win in an armed conflict. This was a serious miscalculation.

(If you try to outgun the police and the military you’re going to have a bad time).

Here humanity approached a crossroad. Probabilities were coalescing as the crisis progressed.

Those who saw the stakes would feel an urgency. With every moment of inaction the likelihood of a tragic ending increased. Something had to be done.

But what?

What could an ordinary individual do to improve the outcome? Could the trajectory of history really be altered?

Some questions are best answered with a riddle.

Rather than predicting what comes next, let’s tell a story. This story has multiple endings and you get to choose.

Story Time

It’s been said that every nation is three meals away from a revolution.

Never before had this principle been tested in so many countries simultaneously as it was in the 2020’s.

At first many held onto the hope that everything would soon go back to normal, but as the long term realities of the decade set in, more and more people would come to the same startling conclusion: the ‘authorities’ were out of their depth.

There was no exit strategy. The situation was not ‘under control’…

In the early stages of the crisis, when the first few governments were collapsing, very few realized how the conflux of economic, geopolitical and social variables were coalescing in a perfect storm.

But when G20 nations started dropping like flies the phenomenon it became impossible to ignore. Like dominoes falling, the collapse of one major economy destabilized every country connected to it. In the age of globalization very few would be spared.

What began as a trickle suddenly accelerated as the downfall of the U.S. dollar precipitated an unprecedented shock to global supply chains.

Imports ground to a halt all around the world. In countries dependent on outsourced food production and manufacturing this translated into widespread shortages and social unrest. In this environment extremist movements of all stripes flourished.

A small handful of nations would weather this storm peacefully. Rather than tearing themselves apart from within or transforming into totalitarian dictatorships, they would unify and adapt.

As economic and monetary shocks disrupted global supply chains and trade, these countries would quickly reorganize their economies to replace imports with local production – starting with food and essentials. Reducing dependence on fossil fuels was an important element of this transition.

To accomplish this feat every aspect of modern life was re-imagined.

Lawns were replaced by gardens; golf courses converted to orchards. Waste streams were recuperated to minimize losses. It wasn’t easy, but these countries pulled through, and before the decade was over, they were building regional trade networks that hadn’t existed before the crisis.

A lot of wealthy countries didn’t do so well in the second phase of the crisis; the part where real hardship kicked in. Populations accustomed to easy living and constant entertainment had a very short fuse.

As shortages and rationing became the new normal and homeless encampments grew, protests would morph into riots, armed uprisings and civil wars.

Governments that were ill prepared for these challenges crumbled quickly; some into the hands of populist movements, others to military juntas. In most cases the replacement was more brutal and repressive that the old system.

The underlying paradigm was rarely questioned at all.

Many regimes would extend their lifespan by totalitarian means. Emergency powers established under lockdown would prove invaluable here.

Policies previously justified by public health would now be implemented in the name of national security; control mechanisms adapted and repurposed to crack down on dissidents.

It was every petty dictator’s wet dream: granular control over every aspect of human behavior and interaction. No one allowed to gather in public without permission. Every contact tracked and traced. If you’re outside you better be prepared to show your papers.

This approach was most effective when the latent fears and hatreds of the population could be rallied against an enemy.

Convince a people that they are under attack and it’s easy to unify them under a flag.

Rather than rioting in the streets, impoverished youth can be conscripted into the military.

Their identities shattered and remolded; conditioned to obey; trained to kill on command.

Send them abroad to steal land and resources.

Use them at home to crush dissent.

War is – after all – the health of the state.

Regardless of which axis prevailed in these conflicts the result would be the same.

A new totalitarian order was the universal prescription; the only cure for the chaos.

The world’s first truly global currency would replace the dollar. This currency would be completely digital; coins and bank notes phased out. Every single transaction conducted using this currency would be recorded on a block blockchain.

Unlike the original cryptocurrencies this blockchain was controlled by a central authority and monitored with AI. Economic privacy a thing of the past.

It was the holy grail of ruling elite, the precursor for global governance with teeth, but before they even had time to properly congratulate themselves, their house of cards was already catching wind.

As living conditions deteriorate, and fear and uncertainty prevail, certain psychological forces are always unleashed. These forces are like the incoming waves of a tsunami.

Once they gather momentum there can be no stopping them.

Throughout history there have been individuals and movements who rode these waves; channeling the tides of human sentiment towards a course of action. Though the science of crowd psychology is complex and nuanced, the application of its principles is mind bogglingly simple.

So simple in fact, that intellectuals typically recoil from them, while bonafide idiots wield them easily (and to great effect).

Like riding a tsunami on a surfboard, attempting to redirect the momentum of a society is highly dangerous.

The crowd can lift a leader to great heights, but one mistake can leave them hanging from a lamp post. Those who manage to navigate these forces usually guard the formula carefully. Failure to do so would threaten the foundations of their power.

This time around however, humanity flipped the script.

In the age of the internet the science of crowd psychology and color revolutions had been available to the public for some time now, but very few saw the utility in studying it.

However as the 2020’s progressed, and it became more and it became more clear that that those in power were pushing civilization toward a dystopian nightmare, a contingent of activists would reverse engineer the tools being used against them.

The work of Gustave Le Bon and Edward Bernays would be modernized and tempered with a cultural code:

the positive application of human instinct.

The instinctual psychology of species can be harnessed for good or for evil. In the modern era it has been weaponized by the military industrial complex for regime change, and by corporations for marketing and public relations.

The same principles however can applied to create rather than destroy. Visions and values can spread like viruses from mind to mind, and from place to place.

The contagion of a single idea can inspire generations towards a new paradigm.

To topple a government is surprisingly easy when conditions are right. Silver spoon politicians who’ve never served or worked a day in their life can easily lose the respect and obedience of military and law enforcement. When that happens, it’s game over.

The question that always comes up in such events (usually as an afterthought) is what will you replace the old system with?

There is nothing more dangerous than armed men with utopian dreams. Sometimes the cure can be worse than the disease.

History provides many cautionary tales. To avoid the trap of oppressed rising up to become the oppressor the paradigm that facilitates this dynamic has to be questioned.

The vast majority of modern governments, businesses and organizations utilize a social structure called vertical collectivism. Vertical collectivism is top down system of organizing human groups which amplifies power by stacking layers of authority in pyramids.

The result is a highly stratified society where those on the bottom have little or no say, and are left to fight over scraps from above.

Vertical collectivism is apolitical. Capitalists companies and Communist regimes both use it without contradiction, as do republics that call themselves democracies.

The vertical model was born of military strategy. A general or warlord alone can only control a small army, but by using subordinate officers in layers of rank, a single individual, or a small ruling class can dominate millions of people and vast territories.

This is why a state is often defined as the monopoly on violence within a region.

Vertical collectivism didn’t spread to every corner of the globe because it improved peoples lives.

In fact modern anthropologists acknowledge that the transition to this way of life was associated with reduced life expectancy and a decline in virtually all measures in health (up until very recently).

Vertical collectivism spread like a cancer because it is brutally effective in the in the context of war.

Every culture that it encountered was either crushed on the battlefield or forced to copy the model to survive. The dawn of civilization – as many euphemistically refer to it – is a story of conquest and colonialization that began approximately 10,000 years ago and continues to this day.

This was not however, the beginning of the human story.

For over 300,000 years – long before the first empires of Asia and Europe began to absorb surrounding tribes – humans organized themselves using a very different model.

Rather than building top down, stratified societies that concentrated wealth and power in the hands of an upper class, these cultures organized horizontally.

Organizing horizontally didn’t mean that there were no leaders.

The authority and instincts are far older than humanity.

Like all social animals, our species is hardwired to follow those who demonstrate courage and intelligence.

However in horizontal societies disparities of wealth and power were significantly smaller.

The leaders and councils responsible for group decisions were not insulated by armies and law enforcement conditioned to obey without question.

Defense and order were maintained by an armed citizenry, bound by a code of conduct. This dynamic forced leaders to be directly accountable to the population.

Their power was rooted in their ability to communicate with the people, build consensus and chart a course of action to the benefit of all.

The fact that horizontal societies required leaders to work with the public in such a personal way had one obvious disadvantage: it limited the size of the group. After all, why would someone voluntarily follow someone far away that they never met?

There is however, a way around this limitation. By forming federations horizontal societies can expand their sphere influence significantly.

An example of this adaptation can be found in the Iroquois confederacy which unified 5 tribes for hundreds of years in the region that came to be called New York.

Each member tribe in the confederacy had their own culture and and internal governance, but a set of shared values enabled them to cooperate economically and militarily. If one tribe was attacked they quickly mounted a common defense.

Many historians believe that United States federal system was based on the Iroquois model. One significant difference however, was that the Iroquois had no central government. There was a central council comprised of representatives from each tribe, but this council had no power to enforce its will.

Each representative was tasked with building a consensus that would resonate with their people.

A modernized adaptation of this Iroquois model gained traction in the mid 2020s as the gears of globalization ground to a halt. While governments proved incapable of solving the most basic problems, decentralized networks were replacing the system from the ground up.

They would start by organizing local food production in their communities and gradually expand cooperation to other sectors.

Their revolution was driven by an idea worth spreading. Not only was it possible to live on this planet without destroying it, this way of life was more abundant and fulfilling than the alternative. There was no need to wait for governments to act. Humans are perfectly capable of organizing themselves.

Those that succeeded became epicenters of a new renaissance; attracting skilled workers and artists from all around the world.

Some of these travelers would put down permanent roots.

Others would return to their homeland to plant seeds of their own.

From the fragments of fallen empires new nations would be born.

From the ashes of dying cultures new cultures would rise.

The great collapse of the 2020’s was not the end of the world.

It was the end of an era, and the dawn of a new one…

Time To Flip The Script

Remember how we said this story has multiple endings?

We’re going take one of them to a literal extreme; and we’re going to do it in the real world.

Now if you’re living in a crowded city center, maybe pushing the boundaries starts by planting a garden in your front yard, organizing a community compost, or speaking out against a war.

However it’s important to understand that in the era we have entered the stakes are rising, and the trajectory we’re on needs to be altered significantly.

This implies fundamental changes in the way we livRemember how we said this story has multiple endings? We’re going take one of them to a literal extreme; and we’re going to do it in the real world.

Now if you’re living in a crowded city center, maybe pushing the boundaries starts by planting a garden in your front yard, organizing a community compost, or speaking out against a war.

However it’s important to understand that in the era we have entered the stakes are rising, and the trajectory we’re on needs to be altered significantly. This implies fundamental changes in the way we live, not just gestures in right direction.

You have to decide what kind of story you and your family want to be a part of. In some cases this might involve immigrating to another country. Others will be more inclined to stay, and fight to change the outcome at home. One way or the other you’ll want to be in a place where you can grow food, and you’ll want to be set up to do this without agrochemical inputs or fossil fuels.

You also don’t want to be reliant on the grid. Utilities can and will go down. Some will be shocked by how long they can stay down.

These aren’t the kind of lifestyle changes you want to make at the last moment, or put off until you can do something large scale. Far better to start transitioning to a new way of life right now. Do what you can with what you have. Join forces with others to amplify.

The learning curve for this kind of transition can be steep. There are a lot of practical skills that we should be taught in school but aren’t. Most kids when they graduate… don’t know how to build a house, or grow a garden, or even how to make bread.

The best way to learn this stuff isn’t really in a classroom anyway. People learn best by example, anchored with hands on experience.

That’s why we built this place. You could think of it as an experiential learning center / maker space. This whole landscape is a laboratory.

Here we can put ideas to an extreme test.

Rather that just reading about this stuff or watching a presentation, volunteers and travelers from all over the world come here to do it themselves. They get their hands dirty in the field: planting plants, working with animals, building crazy structures like these.

They also get to experience first hand what it takes to self organize and live in a different way.

The experience is extreme, because the challenges we face are real. We’re completely off-grid here. Our electricity comes from the sun. We have running water by pumping from the spring up to a tank on the hill.

It’s also up to us to us to maintain the road and drainage. Up here when there’s a problem we have to put our heads together and find a way to solve it.

To put this in perspective, our first long term volunteer was here when we sustained a direct hit from hurricane Maria. He also assisted in the recovery and became part of the story.

Talk is cheap. If you really want to change the world you have to be able to show people how.

We’re doing this here in the Commonwealth of Dominica cause these people are moving in the right direction, and their culture holds some of the keys to the solution.

But where ever you decide to make your stand now is the time to get serious about food security.

Our challenge in the next phase is to grow more and develop local production systems to replace imports.

Some will have a chance to collaborate onsite.

Others will integrate this information and use it creatively; writing themselves into the story in unpredictable ways.

Those who pay close attention and pause often will discover easter eggs; clues with consequences in the real world.

If you agree with the message, it’s up to you to make it spread…

You Won’t Believe Who the NYT Blames for Inflation!

Since the inception of the criminal counterfeiting, market-rigging, loan-sharking syndicate deceptively named “The Federal Reserve System” — the “paper of record” has run interference for the banksters.

Why do so many things seem to cost more now?


By NEIL IRWIN

Since the very inception of the criminal counterfeiting, market-rigging, loan-sharking syndicate deceptively named “The Federal Reserve System” (NOT “Federal,” NO “Reserves” and NOT a decentralized “System”) the “paper of record” has run interference for the banksters. Think of the Fed as the financing tentacle of the NWO octopus, and the Slimes as the communications tentacle. Seemingly different entities, but actually part of the same beast.

When the JudenFed booms up depressed stocks and the general economy with “easy money” financing, the Judenpresse sings its praises for the prosperity it has brought us.

Conversely, when the JudenFed busts the stock bubble and crashes the general economy with “tight money” financing, the Judenpresse again applauds the Fed for “fighting inflation” (which it had actually caused in the first place with its compounding debt-based currency issue!) You see, the all-wise and benevolent Judenbank can do no wrong.

This astonishingly deceitful (even by Slimes standards) article by “Senior Economics Correspondent” Neil Irwin — intended to cover-up the Fed’s responsibility for the current inflation — is the latest example of how these two con artists (the Fed & The Slimes) work together. Let’s clean up some of Irwin’s Marxist manure.

Neil Irwin serves up the usual Fake Macro Economics. Who does he blame for inflation? Wait until you find out!

Dating back for 100 years, the top men of The Fed and the top men at The Slimes have all been members of the exclusive Council on Foreign Relations

The “Business Cycle” is NOT organic. It is scientifically engineered by the banksters, for the banksters.

Irwin: Inflation is dragging down President Biden’s approval ratings and fueling discontent among Americans.
Analysis: The “elites” — through their perceived frontman, “Joe Biden” — are really afraid of being engulfed in an anti-inflation political backlash

Irwin: How did we get here? Who is to blame? To help you understand, today I’ll walk you through the most obvious candidates — and where the evidence looks strongest.
Analysis: The condescending con artist is framing his propaganda to make readers think that he is about to objectively educate them.

Irwin: President Biden:

Presidents have less control over the economy than headlines might suggest, but the current situation is an exception to the rule. You can draw a direct line from a specific policy decision that Biden and congressional Democrats made this past winter to some of the inflation happening now.

In designing the stimulus that Congress passed in March, Biden’s administration went big, with $1.9 trillion in pandemic relief — on top of a separate $900 billion package that passed three months earlier. Put the two together, and $2.8 trillion in federal money has been coursing through the economy this year.
Analysis: Wow! Two whole paragraphs of solid truth! How can this be? This has gotta be an obligatory “limited hangout” — soon to be followed by the liar’s classic “yeah but” trick.

Irwin: But ….
Analysis: There it is! — Now comes the bullshit.

Irwin: For all the trillions spent, Americans’ purchases through the end of September were only about $52 billion higher than would have been expected in a world where the pandemic never happened. I take that as evidence that the inflation story is more complicated than just too much money floating around.
Analysis: Of course, it’s “complicated” — but Professor Irwin will “walk us through,” I’m sure — as he predictably scratches Biden off of his list of inflationary culprits.

Irwin: The Fed:

The nation’s central bank has kept ultra-easy monetary policy in place for far longer than in past economic cycles.
Analysis: Exactly right. Tell it, Irwin. Tell it! — How much youse guys wanna bet that another “yeah but” is coming next?

Irwin:But …
Analysis: Oh how well do I know these slippery sons-of-bitches!

Irwin: Chairman Powell and other policymakers might be fighting the last war. At a minimum, the Fed has not played its traditional role of pre-empting an inflation surge by deliberately slowing the economy. That said, monetary policy takes a long time to affect consumer prices, so it’s not a given that the inflation situation would be terribly different now if the Fed had started raising rates already.                                                                                                                                                 
Translation: You can also scratch the innocent Fed off of the list of suspects for the worsening inflation.

Hmmmm. If it’s not Biden and the Demonrat’s fault — and it’s not the Fed’s fault — then where are we going with this “investigation” of yours, Mr. “Senior Economics Correspondent?”

Picture
Irwin cites the Demonrats’ massive “stimulus” spending — then “yeah buts” us into another direction. 
Picture
Irwin cites the Fed’s “printing press”— then “yeah buts” us into another direction. 
Picture
“Yeah but.”

Irwin: Corporate America:

When the pandemic shut down the world in 2020, operations managers at companies concluded: We need to do whatever we can to survive. Automakers cut back production and orders for new supplies. Airlines canceled orders for new jets. Energy companies canceled drilling projects. Companies laid off workers.

We’re still dealing with the effects of those decisions. Now, automakers are wishing they hadn’t canceled orders for semiconductors, car rental companies are struggling to add vehicles, shipping prices are through the roof, fuel prices are spiking, and companies are wrestling with labor shortages. What seemed like sensible decisions turned out to be wrong for the actual economy.

Translation: Ignore the wild Federal spending and the historic explosion of the monetary base / debt-money supply. Inflation is the fault of poor decisions made by “capitalists.”

HO–LEE–SHIT — This brazen Bolshevik bullshitter needs to have his forked-tongue ripped out with a pair of pliers. But the worst is yet to come. Let’s see who the next “culprit” behind inflation is.

Irwin: All of Us:

We shifted our spending toward stuff, rather than services. Americans purchased 18 percent more physical goods in September than they did in February 2020, while their consumption of services fell. Because demand for such goods is off-the-charts high while supplies are limited, they are more expensive.
Translation: It’s your fault, Americans!

Irwin: And many of us elected to stop working, or work less. The shortage of workers has led employers to offer higher wages to attract employees. That fuels price increases.
Analysis: Half truth. Irwin completely ignores the fact that employees — even during “normal” times — constantly require higher wages because the value of the dollar is constantly being debased. Irwin is blaming wet sidewalks for the rain.

Irwin: The Takeaway

The great shift in Americans’ purchasing and employment patterns prompted by the pandemic look like the primary culprit in this bout of inflation. That means the future of inflation depends on how quickly Americans return to more typical spending patterns and more people go back to work.
Analysis: The “yeah but” punchlines of this horrible reality-inverting article should actually be the secondary points (“supply chain” issues, labor shortages etc) — and the limited hangouts about the “stimulus” spending and the Fed printing press should be the “yeah buts.”  As inflation worsens, even the most dim-witted inhabitants of the overlapping Kingdoms of Libtardia and Normiedom aren’t going to swallow this convoluted crap. Irwin and his paymasters know it — but (((they))) are desperate to protect the Fed and somehow try to thwart the coming 2022 devastation of the Demonrat Party.

10 OMICRON ‘Variant’ Predictions For 2022 And Beyond

The omicron “variant” media hysteria is pure fiction. It’s nothing but a 1984-style Orwellian psychological terrorism operation that has been engineered to keep the populations of the world enslaved and obedient while terrorist governments carry out their global depopulation / genocide programs.

omicron variant

The evil genius of this narrative is that it requires no evidence whatsoever. Since no one can actually see a “variant” — and since no isolated omicron viral samples exist anywhere in the world for lab test confirmations — a coordinated mass media hysteria campaign simply implants human consciousness with the illusion of omicron, accompanied by extreme fear.

To date, no one in America has even been diagnosed with the variant, and no one has died from it anywhere on the planet. Yet thanks to mass media journo-terrorism, half of America is now freaking out over something that likely doesn’t exist at all. “Omicron” is almost certainly a coordinated fabrication.

Yet out of nowhere, the media has managed to program the population to lose their minds upon mention of the word, “mutations.”

Although random mutations in genetic material take place literally millions of times each day in every human being’s own body, suddenly “mutations” are the scariest thing imaginable, according to the hyperventilating media. (Which is why I call omicron a “scariant,” not a variant.)

Over The Last Two Years, Globalists Have Confirmed That FEAR, Not “Science,” Is Their Ultimate Mechanism Of Control Over Humanity

Remember when we were all told in 2020 that if just 60 – 70% of the country agreed to take two shots, everything would return to normal and covid would be over? It was all a calculated lie from the start.

The lie promised freedom if people would just comply, but what it delivered was tyranny and fear… along with never-ending obedience to government-coerced vaccine compliance.

What 2020 and 2021 have now exhaustively proven to the globalists is that fear is their ultimate weapon against humanity. Through the use of coordinated fear, they can convince about half the population of the world to be injected with deadly spike protein gene therapy shots that will kill them over time. Conveniently, all those deaths can be blamed on something else — like cancer — thereby avoiding any blame being focused on the vaccines.

Why is there already a 29X increase in stillborn babies, by the way? As Steve Kirsch writes at Substack.com:

There is a 29X increase in the rate of stillborn babies in Waterloo, Ontario that started after vaccination program rolled out. All the mothers of the stillborn babies were vaccinated…

Yes, this is a big deal. But nobody is listening. Cardiac risk could go up 1,000X after vaccination and it wouldn’t matter. Nobody is listening.

As psychologists know very well, when fear is combined with sensory overload (i.e. too much news, too many voices, conflicting reports, etc.), people naturally default to anything that resembles authority. Their rational mind is completely shut down, and they can no longer engage in critical thinking.

Once they are sufficiently pounded into relentless fear, the governments of the world herd them into vaccination centers for their obedient depopulation shots. With a page ripped right out of the Stanford prison experiment, they also transform obedient vax recipients into societal “prison guards” / enforcers who demand that everyone else be injected with the same concoction… or else.

This is why so many vaxxed people have turned into raging lunatics who try to force their death shots on everyone around them. (And just maybe, the vaccine prions are eating their brains, too, causing aggressive personality changes…)

Ten Predictions For How Omicron Hysteria Will Be Exploited By Terrorist Governments To Accelerate Their Murderous Genocide Against Humanity

Over the last several months, I have publicly predicted the release of a new, scarier bioweapon narrative. The coordinated mass media omicron freakout was easily predicted, and many of us across independent media are on the record predicting exactly this.

But what will they do next? That’s also very easy to see, since it all comes from the same playbook as covid. Omicron hysteria will be aggressively pushed and used in every way imaginable to achieve totalitarian control over the masses, who will then be lined up and taken to death camps for efficient extermination.

Here are my ten predictions for Omicron and 2022:

Prediction #1: Omicron variant hysteria will be used to reset everyone’s vaccine passports to zero, coercing people into a whole new round of vaccines for this new variant. Those stupid enough to go along with omicron variant vaccines will be signing up for a never-ending series of spike protein bioweapons injections, which will eventually kill them.

Prediction #2: Omicron hysteria will be exploited to justify aggressive vaccine mandates, demanding that this “new emergency” overrides all human rights, medical freedom and body autonomy.

Prediction #3: Although the omicron variant has so far only been found in fully vaccinated people, the lying corporate media will blame its origins on the unvaccinated.

Prediction #4: The omicron variant will be used as a cover story by the corporate media to try to explain away all the Antibody Dependent Enhancement (ADE) deaths caused by covid vaccines. Even as vaccinated people die in large numbers, the media will blame the unvaccinated (see #3, above) and demand that unvaccinated people be completely locked down and denied access to society.

Prediction #5: Omicron hysteria will be used to attempt to criminalize dissent against vaccines, mandates, government “authority” or the covid criminals behind the gain-of-function research, such as Anthony Fauci. All such dissenting speech will be designated a “danger to society,” and those who utter such speech will be accused of killing people.

Prediction #6: Mass hysteria pushed by the journo-terrorist media will justify governors ordering more lockdowns, leading to more supply chain failures, product scarcity and price inflation.

Prediction #7: If the media can push the omicron hysteria with enough ferocity, it will be used to either cancel the 2022 mid-term elections or demand universal mail-in voting, citing the “extreme dangers” of anyone going out in public.

Prediction #8: Every economic failure caused by the incompetent, criminal Biden regime will be blamed on omicron. This imaginary “variant” instantly becomes the scapegoat for sky-high energy prices, supply shortages and empty grocery store shelves. The media will blame everything on omicron, and then they will blame omicron on the unvaccinated.

Prediction #9: At some point, either the omicron variant or the next one that’s unleashed will be used to justify door-to-door mandatory vaccines in America, along with the medical kidnapping of anyone who resists, taking them away to covid concentration camps for efficient extermination. (This practice has already begun in Australia, where the military is kidnapping indigenous people and taking them away to camps at gunpoint.)

Prediction #10: Omicron won’t be the last variant that’s used to evoke mass hysteria and multi-billion dollar government payouts to Big Pharma. This scamdemic will be repeated every year or so, in perpetuity, for as long as the people remain in fear and go along with it.

China Tells Citizens To Stock Up On Food Before Winter

China’s central planners are telling the country’s 1.4 billion people to stock up on food for the winter because there may not be enough to go around.

china tells citizens to stock up on food before winter

The ChiCom leaders ordered the leading state-owned energy companies in September to secure enough supplies for the winter months at “all costs,” and now they are telling Chinese households that they’d better start stocking up on food as well, which is triggering wild speculation about the possibility that tensions with Taiwan may spill over into all-out warfare, which would likely spark a response from Asian neighbors and the United States.

Bloomberg reported that the Ministry of Commerce has informed Chinese households earlier in the week to store additional food in case there is an emergency following another outbreak of COVID-19, heavy rains which have caused a dramatic increase in veggie prices and the coming colder weather.

“The commerce ministry directive is similar to the one released ahead of the holidays at the start of October, which told local governments to secure food supplies. The order comes as a coronavirus outbreak prompted fresh lockdowns,” Zero Hedge noted.

The order from the CCP was issued via the government’s Weibo account, which is a Twitter-like platform: “Ministry of Commerce encourages households to stockpile daily necessities as needed.” As of Tuesday, nearly 20 million people had seen it.

“As soon as this news came out, all the old people near me went crazy panic buying in the supermarket,” wrote one Weibo noted.

Meanwhile, a CCP-backed newspaper, the Economic Daily, told citizens not to engage in “too much of an overactive imagination,” noting further that the purpose of the directive was simply to ensure that Chinese citizens could feed themselves in the event of another lockdown.

The weather has been increasingly worrisome after the China Meteorological Administration (CMA) said last month that a La Nina weather pattern is already ushering in cooler temperatures, which is not only putting a pinch on food production but also comes as coal supplies across the country are depleted thanks to a boost in demand — which is causing prices to rise and will have a resultant effect on Chinese consumers as well.

“The Chinese government is losing the battle to control rising coal prices,” Alex Whitworth, head of Asia Pacific Power and Renewables Research at Wood Mackenzie, told Reuters. “Despite efforts to increase coal supply, weather, security, and logistics challenges caused production to fall in September. Nor has China been able to rein in rising electricity demand.”

China is seen as being proactive for its people, believe it or not, while the losers in our government pretend there isn’t any inflation and there won’t be any major product and food shortages despite being unable (and unwilling) to resolve the still worsening supply chain crisis.

Global food prices will remain high as supplies remain tight as well, so all of this means that it’s probably best for American consumers to start stockpiling food and other goods as well, since there has already been shortages of, yes, toilet paper and other commodities in the big box stores.

Collapsing Food Supply Chain: Major Storable Food Supplier, Augason Farms, Ceases Operations For 3 Full Months.

The U.S. has its own energy crisis brewing, thanks again to the Biden regime. Gasoline and diesel fuel prices have skyrocketed since the brainless one took office in January; prices for gas are up 200 percent in some parts of the country and are still rising after Biden’s handlers instructed him to end oil and gas drilling projects.

Coal is also in short supply; all of the 2022 and most of the 2023 coal supplies have already been bought up, which means if we have an unusually cold winter, those supplies are going to dry up even more quickly because over the past 20-30 years, insane left-wing “climate change” policies have decimated that industry.

We have nothing against clean air and water, of course — we just have a problem with seeing Americans starve or freeze to death because of idiot policies.

At least China is being proactive.

Evil Media is Blaming Inflation on the “Global Supply Chain.”

Have you noticed how Fake News is blaming the breakdown of the “Global Supply Chain” for the ever-worsening inflation we are seeing? It’s a LIE!

OCTOBER 25, 2021

NY Times:Consumer Goods Prices Rise as Manufacturers Grapple With Higher Costs.

Higher costs caused by pandemic-related supply chain disruptions.

Have you noticed how everyone who’s anyone in Fake News and Quackademia is now blaming the breakdown of the “Global Supply Chain”for the ever-worsening inflation we are experiencing? The snarling of the “Global Supply Chain”– the “experts” say — coupled with  increased post-lockdown “pent up” consumer demand — has caused shortages and slowed deliveries. More demand AND less supply equals higher costs. Simple economics, right? Well, if that’s the case, then it should mean that as soon as demand stabilizes whilst we manufacture more stuff — we will see the prices of our steaks, eggs, milk, toothpaste etc. all drop just as rapidly as they’ve gone up in recent months, right? (rolling eyes sarcastically).

Yenta Yellen – Treasury Secretary & former Fed Chair – reassures us:

“On a 12-month basis the inflation rate will remain high into next year, but I expect improvement (in the rate) by the middle to the end of next year – second half of next year.”

Key word: “rate.” — You see, though the rate of inflation may come back down to an “acceptable” 2% (don’t bet on that either), the already “baked-into-the-cake” price increases will never roll back. That’s because the problem with the “Global Supply Chain” (a big factor of which has to do with California’s crazy anti-trucker laws) has got NOTHING to do with the debasement of our currency’s value. The “powers that be” understand this very well — but because their counterfeiting / loan sharking / market rigging crime syndicate that is the Federal Reserve System must be protected at all times and at all costs, “they” want you to believe that our current inflationary woes are mainly the result of some esoteric bullshit linked to the “Global Supply Chain.”

The nonsensical article repeats the fallacy about “higher manufacturing costs” and “increased labor costs” having to be passed onto customers in the form of final retail inflation. That’s like saying that wet sidewalks are causing the thunder storms. Price inflation is actually caused by the Federal Reserve’s never-ending infusions of debt-based currency into the economy. This is being done via the banking system (residential & commercial real estate & mortgage refinance boom) and also through direct loans (bond purchases) to the government (Covid-related “stimulus,” payments to hospitals and individuals etc.) The bubble caused by this tsunami of credit had been previously limited to the stock and real estate markets — but now, everything is being blown up. Been to the grocery store lately?

The eye-popping Monetary Base chart below was published by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. If “the paper of record” had any integrity, it would appear on its front page for all to see the obvious cause & effect linkage  between the production of debt money to fund “Stupid-19” and the inevitable increase in prices. It is the simplest darn chart you’ll ever see. Have a look — a good look.

UP, UP AND AWAY!

Fed lending to the member banks and the government put us on the artificial life support which kept the Obongo economy afloat from 2009-2016. The next great inundation of funny money — always through interest-bearing loans — came with the lockdowns.

We don’t know how much longer “the usual suspects” will be able to get away with blaming this frightening inflation on the Scamdemic’s effect upon the  “Global Supply Chain”. It truly is blood-boiling to have to read their blame-shifting bullshit. Here’s a sample, from the article:

Slimes: The pandemic has disrupted nearly every aspect of the global supply chain — that’s the usually invisible pathway of manufacturing, transportation and logistics that gets goods from where they are manufactured, mined or grown to where they are going.
Rebuttal: “Every aspect” of the “Global Supply Chain” ? Seems to this reporter that the only broken links are at the massive ports of California (and, to a lesser extent, certain east coast ports as well)— yet not a single mention of the true causes of the unprecedented California backlog of nearly 500,000 essential containers!

Slimes: At the end of the chain is another company or a consumer who has paid for the finished product. Scarcity has caused the prices of many things to go higher.”
Rebuttal: So, it is “scarcity” which is causing prices to rise, eh? The doubling of the monetary base (at interest!) has got nothing to do with it?

In that case, fuck it! We should print even more debt money — like (((they))) did in Wiemar Republic days. Let’s just hope that the political turn of events which comes out of this looming crisis will be similar to that of Germany 1932 — know what I’m sayin’?
